2001 Toyota Corolla Sedan CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We're scrapping the car today.
It made it to 90k miles.
It has the following problems:

* The motor (1ZZFE) was built with a design flaw, but Toyota kept using it.
Hundreds of people on the internet have reported the same thing.
It burns oil until it hits a point where every 100 miles it burns 1 quart of oil.
The engine went bad and needed a replacement starting at 50k miles
* The catalytic converter is dead.
* The rotors are bad and braking feels choppy.
* The driver door handle simply broke off when I tried to open the door.
* The clutch went bad at 50k miles.
* Some smaller issues like a leak somewhere that mechanics couldn't find, causing repeated engine lights and EVAP codes.


Best Features

The heater works well.


Worst Features

This car is best suited to be used as a prop in monster truck rallies.

2001 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought used, now has 240,000km. Still has the original brakes, not a spot of rust anywhere (Canadian car) and in the winter it gets cold started twice a day every day as this is a commuter car. Haven't had a single problem with it. A little underpowered but hey its an economy car. Fuel consumption is 6l/100km in the summer and about 8l/100km in the winter.

Review

I bought brand new summer 2000 (as a starving college student).

My converter died early and I had terrible gas mileage. My interior has just collapsed. I mean it's a cheap car, but really, Toyota can't make an interior headliner that looks nice for at least 5 years?


Best Features

I got nothing.


Worst Features

Interior quality. Gas mileage / Engine / catalytic converter quality
